Teams Mobile App - Front facing camera zoomed in too far
Can the default camera zoom setting be set so it's not zoomed in as far? We consistently see people's foreheads when they join on the mobile app.

Completely agree with the other commenters. The worst part is that to the mobile device user the preview looks perfectly fine. It only appears zoomed for the desktop users. This is embarrassing and wastes a lot of time in trying to either get everyone to turn their device to a horizontal orientation for it to zoom back out. Even then the camera angle is not ideal and doesn’t center your face as it would in a vertical orientation. The only other fix is for the desktop user to manually click on the zoomed-in mobile user’s video feed and select “Fit to Frame” to have the video zoom back out. There is nothing the mobile device user can do to correct it from their end and the fact that this has been an issue since early last year is ridiculous. To ask and inconvenience an important client or meeting guest to correct this from their end is unacceptable. This should have been resolved by now.
Horrible horrible mobile app! Camera zooms in far too much during calls on my iphone and only shows my forehead. Microsoft, fix this asap!

I am new to teams and I have done several recordings recently over video calls using Teams. In both the recordings, I have noticed a problem that during the call when I see the preview of myself it is fine but later on when I see the recordings in Stream, it gets auto-zoomed. It gets at least 2X or 4X zoom automatically. Camera control settings are a must here. We are making professional videos with our guests and we can't ask them to give us the time again and again because the current recordings are almost useless in most of the cases.
